I am so in love with this wallet! It is totally worth the money and the wait. It's gorgeous, high quality, and everything I asked for. It also shipped on the exact day she promised and I got it very quickly after it shipped. I will be treating myself to another Happi Hippo wallet in the future for sure. I

Korrin was so wonderful to work with and I am thrilled with the end result! I sent in a medium JJB set piece for my custom wallet. Great communication, got done faster than I initially hoped for, and coordinates wonderfully with all of my other JJB pieces. The size is absolutely awesome and fits so much better in the pieces I carry than my old big wallet did. Highly recommend and will definitely use in the future when I need another wallet!

About

Fabric, color and organization fanatic, working to culminate the perfect creation, one bag at a time!

Hey there! I’m Korrin, the girl behind the Happi Hippo handbags!

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little better.

When I first began this adventure, I was a stay-at-home mom of four. I was always looking for my ideal organizational and design elements in diaper bags, purses and wallets. I became frustrated when I couldn't find what I was really looking for and ultimately began creating my own. My mom had taught me the basics of sewing when I was a teen, but I was too busy thinking about "other" things...no, not boys!! ;) Other than that, I am a self-taught seamstress. Through many wonderful tutorials out there and trial and error, I absolutely fell in love with the process and well, here I am!

I named my shop The Happi Hippo in memory of my late dad. In many ways, he lived life large and always had a smile on his face. His friends called him the "Happy Hippo". :)

I LOVE working with the customers here on Etsy...who knew that collaborating on the creation of a handbag could often times turn into a new friendship!!

In my spare time, I am mom to four; 20, 18, 16 and 12 and wife to wonderful, programmer/guitarist husband (interesting combo, right?!). I love to run, hike, bike, snow shoe, pretty much anything outdoors is right up my alley. You can also find me out and about on the town, dancing with friends and listening to my husband's band. Denver has much beauty and excitement to offer all around. If you're local or just in town, give me a buzz and let's connect!

The Happi Hippo promise…my number one goal is to work with you to create a one of a kind bag of superior quality, made just for you! I joyfully and with much attention to detail, draft my own handbag patterns, cut and prepare all the fabric, sew them up, photograph them and ship them to you. I pride myself on straight seams, even stitching and a sturdy construction to create a finished product that looks good and is built to last! You can count on prompt and friendly customer service to top it off!

Custom Orders are my specialty and ALWAYS welcome! I'm just an email away if you have any questions. If you have a fabric idea in mind, we can most likely find it together!!
